Your smile is one of the first things that other people notice about you, so the appearance of your teeth can have a major impact on your confidence.

In fact, the look of your teeth can even affect your quality of life and success. In one study commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontists,  14% of people who were unhappy with their smile believed that their teeth hindered them from landing a better job.

Here are the top 3 dental concerns and how Cosmetic dentistry could be an excellent solutions to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted!

1. Staining

Smoking, coffee, tea, red wine, and some types of antibiotics can all take their toll on your teeth, leaving a noticeable yellow or gray tone on the surface of your tooth enamel. Removing these surface stains can make you look years younger and restore a healthy, attractive look to your face.

Cosmetic Dental Solutions

Teeth whitening or bleaching is one excellent option to remove noticeable stains on your teeth. We suggest BriteSmile® at Marlborough Dental Centre, which is an extremely effective, yet gentle, teeth whitening treatment that can lighten your teeth by up to 9 shades.

To help prepare the surface of your teeth, we recommend getting a thorough teeth cleaning from your dental hygienist. Once your teeth are ready, we apply the BriteSmile® treatment, which typically takes about an hour at our office.

2. Chipping

Perhaps you’ve fallen or taken a bite out of something hard, and one of your teeth has chipped. Often a chipped teeth are the most common in the front of the mouth, which can make you feel very self-conscious when you smile or speak.

This type of dental emergency is common but can be easily fixed.

Cosmetic Dental Solutions

We offer two effective solutions to repair a chipped tooth: dental bonding and veneers.

With dental bonding, we apply a special dental resin to fill out the tooth. In this quick, painless procedure, we prepare your tooth, apply the dental bond, and sculpt the surface so that it looks indistinguishable from the rest of your natural tooth.

With veneers, we use extremely thin porcelain shells instead of a dental resin. After administering a local anesthetic and preparing the tooth, we carefully apply a temporary veneer using a strong bonding agent. In your follow-up visit, we attach a permanent veneer that has been custom-designed to match your tooth. Veneers are usually the best option if you have a large tooth chip to fill.

3. Gaps, Crowding, or Crooked Alignment

Your teeth are bright and evenly shaped, but they’ve got noticeable gaps, crowding or crooked alignment. Correcting your teeth’s spacing and alignment will not only improve your smile, but also your oral health. The reason is because if your teeth don’t align the bones and muscles in your jaw can be affected.

Cosmetic Dental Solutions

At Marlborough Dental Centre, we can correct most cases of misaligned teeth with Invisalign®, an innovative alternative to braces that uses a series of custom-designed plastic aligners to move your teeth with gentle, constant pressure. Invisalign® is removable, so you can easily take off the braces to eat, brush your teeth, and play sports.

You deserve a beautiful smile!

Cosmetic dentistry offers many solutions to quickly correct common dental problems like teeth staining, chips, and misalignment.
